The guys are officially out as IFC leaders after last night’s meeting. The VP sent out this letter:
Big win for Greeks at USC.
Two weeks ago, IFC President, Tim Bryson, and Vice President, Jonathan Withrow, halted rush for 13 fraternities at the University of South Carolina due to alcohol violations. Chapter presidents are now fighting back over what they see as an unfair and unacceptable use of power. The chapter presidents are recommending that the two be dismissed from their positions entirely.
From The Daily Gamecock:
Harris R. Courson, Fraternity Council Vice President of Programming, was contacted by four fraternity chapter presidents who are officially petitioning for the removal of Bryson and Withrow, saying that the two “have not lived up to the standards of [their] position.” Courson then passed on that information to Bryson and Withrow, omitting the petitioners’ names.
Bryson and Withrow are both shocked that this is happening to them considering they honestly believe they did the right thing by halting rush for the 13 fraternities. Withrow apparently believes this is just the fraternities being vindictive towards them as a result of their being punished.
A hearing will take place tonight, and an impeachment vote could be held next week where 18 chapters will need to vote in favor for the two to be removed..
